Thread: First Big Bang set for Next Week
#1 First Big Bang set for Next Week09-18-2008, 04:15 PM
One of the first images taken with CMS, one of the detectors, after a beam of particles was smashed into a tungsten block
Yep. The Super Collider that was tested a few weeks back - you know, the one that was HACKED due to security problems this week - is set to have it's first big bang next week.
Excellent move forward for science?
Extremely stupid move for humanity and our world?
Only time will tell ... unless time itself is ripped apart and a major tear in time/space sends us all into another dimension or another reality.
(wonder if that reality would be better than this one? :D )

We'll start the usual End Of The World As We Know It thread in the Lounge next week. Be sure to bring the good beer this time.

The priests of the different religious sects dread the advance of science as witches do the approach of daylight, and scowl on the fatal harbinger announcing the subdivision of the duperies on which they live.--Thomas Jefferson

Now, they were supposed to wait until 2012 to be in sinc with the Mayan calendar. Don't those damned scientists know anything?

Well, this is the first test. I sure full power won't be for another four years.
